Managing company Windows devices, where do I start?

Hello.

 

Currently company is providing devices with no AD or any supervision. Current or the past sysadmins did not bother implementing AD or any sort of supervision and this has been getting on my nerves. I have to ask the personnel for their anydesk/teamviewer every time they require my attention. There is also the situation of personnel installing all kinds of shit to their computers, even going as far as "debloating" their work computers and breaking shit left and right. I have never dealt enterprise device management before, where do I start?

 

I also wouldnt mind having a WSUS to control which updates are rolled out to all of our devices and when.

Active Directory

Wsus / Msupdate

TightVNC (set up everywhere with the same password)

 

Also, if you want to be brutal, Voodoo Shield and an Antivirus/Security suite that you can use to block certain websites, types of content etc.

Forgive me for being clueless but is there a way to just access user devices through AD or a similar already integrated windows feature? RDP is out of the question as clients are not connected to our VPN.

The best things to access Users devices remotely still are Teamviewer or Anydesk. 

 

Here I rolled out an AD, still a few devices left to join, as addition like you mentioned a WSUS to be able to disallow certain updates and save on used bandwith. one Download of patches instead of downlod*number of devices needing updates.

 

Well right now I'm always running between two locations, a new one, just aquired and the old office or even a thrid location the old warehouse. 

For normal support I use Teamviewer on the devices. 

 

And gotta go over to the new location, getting a label printer running, cloning a dying nvme in a laptop and switching that... perhaps taking apart the local network again and rearrange it before putting it back together. 

 

Lots to do as only IT guy, who needs a full time member in the IT departement (waiting for over a year now) 

2 Main Systems (mine and my late wifes):

System 1 "Igluna" AsRock Fatal1ty Z77 Pro, Core I5 3570k @4300, 16 GB Ram DDR3 2133, some SSD, and a 2 TB HDD each, Gainward Phantom 760GTX.

System 2 "Inskah" AsRock Fatal1ty Z77 Pro, Core I5 3570k @4300, 16 GB Ram DDR3 2133, some SSD, and a 2 TB HDD each, Gainward Phantom 760GTX.

 

New System in the making "Anghammarad" AsRock Taichi x570, AMD Ryzen 5800X, 32 GB Ram DDR4 3600, some SSD, Gainward Phoenix GS 1060.

 

On the Road: Acer Aspire 5 Model A515-51G-54FD, Intel Core i5 7200U, 8 GB DDR4 Ram, 120 GB SSD, 1 TB HDD, Intel CPU GFX and Nvidia MX 150, Full HD IPS display

 

Media System: Asrock ASRock Z87 Extreme4/TB4, Intel Core i5 4460, 16 GB Ram DDR3 1600 ADATA XPG, 1 275 GB SSD, 4 Seagate Ironwolf 4TB HDD in raid 5, Gainward Phantom 560 GTX (the 560 will be replaced with one of the 760 due to better effeciency)

 

(Abit Fatal1ty FP9 IN SLI, C2Duo E8400, 6 GB Ram DDR2 800, far too less diskspace, Gainward Phantom 560 GTX broken need fixing)

 

Nostalgia: Amiga 1200, Tower Build, CPU/FPU/MMU 68EC020, 68030, 68882 @50 Mhz, 10 MByte ram (2 MB Chip, 8 MB Fast), Fast SCSI II, 2 CDRoms, 2 1 GB SCSI II IBM Harddrives, 512 MB Quantum Lightning HDD, self soldered Sync changer to attach VGA displays, WLAN

I work in hospital IT, we have hundreds of computers.

Using built in Windows remote desktop to connect usually disconnects (logs out) the use on the machine. That's why VNC and/or other remote desktop softwares.
